From AIS Bulletin #189, April 1968 Introducing GENTIAN ETUDE (Georgia Hinkle '68), T-23-5. $25.00. 32". L. A huge iris of magnificent proportions yet quiet dignity lend a touch of Victorian elegance to the garden. Fully ruffled standard of gentian blue (Plate 43/3 Wilson's Colour Chart); crown finely ruffled. Fall held horizontally for one-half of their diameter; then gracefully dipping. Central portion of the falls is highlighted, giving a luminous quality to the very pale, greenish yellow overlay. Daffodil yellow spills over the hafts. Closed standards are so deeply waved that they lay in outward folds. Moderate branching holds an average of 7 buds which develop into flowers of unusual substance. Parentage: LASATA X R-15-1. (LASATA and R-15-1 are from years of line breeding from LE BEAU, SYMPHONY, MAGIC MORN.) HC 1965. Gilbert Wild.
